New Zealand and Worcester Warriors lock Michael Fatialofa has started walking unaided as he continues his recovery from a spinal injury which required surgery.
Fatialofa, 27, suffered the injury while playing for Worcester against Saracens on January 4, less than a minute after coming onto the field in the second half. Fatialofa was hurt just one minute after coming off the Warriors bench, and was taken to St Mary's hospital in west London.
The New Zealand native spent nearly three weeks in intensive care after suffering a serious neck injury in the 31-5 defeat in January which left him needing surgery to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord.
Now, Fatialofa has continued his rehabilitation as he walked without assistance in a video shared by his wife Tatiana on Instagram.
She created a subtitle on the video clip analysis: "Not blowing smoke when I state "Jesus is the solution".Читайте также: Trump calls to protect Asian Americans after virus uproar
You are witnessing a miracle that even medical professionals can't explain.
"They are so shocked by their progress given their critical level of injury".
"Y'all he was essentially paralysed from the neck down simply 10 weeks back as well as presently spine injuries do not have a facility treatment, however my fantastic partner is evidence that God is never ever restricted to human knowledge. So so so thankful".
A JustGiving page was set up by the Rugby Players' Association's Restart charity to provide for his immediate needs and future costs and unforeseen expenses.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
